so, in all this took me like 5 hrs to make, which i think is awesome. the booby area and the top of the back are an old t-shirt, and the bottom is some fabric from my grandma's house.  apparently she made a dress out of it in the 60s.  the straps are shoelaces.  basically, for the top part, i measured the boob area of a shirt i already had, and then just made a strip the same length for the back.  i made a pattern for this shirt out of newspaper.  the bottom is two trapezoids sewn together.  the length is the length of the baltimore sun, because i didn't feel adding more paper.  technically, i could wear it as a dress, but that'd be kind of slutty.  i'm pretty proud of it. Smiley

haha. the money shot.
